Beating the Bounds (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Julia King.

"Beating the bounds" was a typically local but highly symbolic and even quasi-religious ritual or custom originating in medieval England that served to mark the territorial limits of the village or parish.  This paper uses material culture, including landscape, to examine how Charles Calvert, the third Lord Baltimore, used everyday travel in Maryland as a colonial form of beating the bounds. Calvert’s travel was driven in part because of the heavy investment his family had made in the colony,...

The Foundation of Meaning (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Philip Levy.

Sometime in the 1870s, a small set of subterranean stones became an object of importance and pilgrimage. Promoters, travel writers, and visitors claimed that the stones were the original foundations of George Washington’s boyhood home near Fredericksburg Virginia. The site was already well known as the site of Parson Weems’s famous Cherry Tree parable, but as the landscape recovered from the Civil War, residents look for other ways to have a less troubled American past. Washington provided the...


Ghost Road: Tracing El Camino Viejo Through Southern California (2020)
DOCUMENT Citation Only James E Snead.

This is an abstract from the session entitled "Roads, Rivers, Rails and Trails (and more): The Archaeology of Linear Historic Properties" , at the 2020 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology. The study of historic roads in the North American West is a complex process. Pragmatic issues of scale, accessibility, and preservation are accompanied by aspects of interpretation and meaning. This is particularly evident in southern California, where the vast physical transformations...

Horse Culture and English Customs: The Importance of the Saddle Horse in 18th-Century English Colonies (2013)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Sara Rivers Cofield.

Research into the origin of horse furniture found in colonial assemblages in Maryland has revealed new information about the predominance of saddle horses for travel there. English Customs records from 1697 to 1770 illustrate that more bridles and saddles of English manufacture were imported to Maryland and Virginia than to any other English colony in the New World, indicating that saddle horses may have been far more important in the Chesapeake than in other English colonies. This paper looks...

Understanding 19th Century Indigenous River-Portage Travel in Maine and New Brunswick Through Network Analysis (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Mallory L Moran.

The indigenous people of northeastern North America utilized the river systems of the continent to form an extensive network of travel and communication. While the riverine system offered the opportunity for local and long-distance connections between communities, the environmental dynamics of the system presented challenges for travelers. The directionality of water flow patterns, coupled with seasonal variations in flow magnitude and water temperature, meant that the difficulty of travel...


The Upper Usumacinta Travel Corridor, A Game of Chutes and Ladders (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Ronald Canter.

Like other major rivers the Usumacinta had parallel land routes. Unlike most rivers the Usumacinta lies bound within whitewater canyons below Yaxchilan, cut off from its flanking trails except at gaps dictated by the geography. In the Classic Period, the river and its trails formed a ladder-like grid offering great mobility, but requiring tradeoffs between speed and safety. For both the ancient Maya and modern boatmen the Usu’ was a fast, efficient, and dangerous route to the lowlands. Two...
